Location: England
Age (ish!): 18

Location (approximate - no actual address, please!): England, specifically the Midlands

SLOCs/children/pets/imaginary friends: 2 pygmy goats called Dennis and Minnie, plus 2 guinea pigs called Rosie and Patch.

Favourite and least favourite books and characters: The ones I can remember liking most when I was younger were Princess and Exile, although I have a soft spot for Genius. I dislike the fact that I've only been able to read abridged editions of several books though.

How you got into the Chalet School: Found the first book as a "Modern Classics" edition at primary school and have borrowed books off my former neighbour/scavenged for them in Oxfam ever since (still miffed that their copy of "A Chalet Girl from Kenya" was £50 so very much out of my price range aged 16).

How you found the CBB: I follow Elennare on tumblr and she recommended the site to me when I was bemoaning the lack of CS fans on tumblr.

Yes they are :D . We did also used to have a 3rd goat, Brian, although he was named after the famous football manager
